Paul Richardson is finally healthy and the Seahawks are thrilled to see him playing up to his potential.
“It is really fun to see him so confident now,” coach Pete Carroll said (via Tim Booth of The Associated Press). “He has just grown so much. He has been very level-headed about it as well in his work habits and everything. His mentality has been great, but you can see the confidence is really just coming out of him.”
The wide receiver leads Seattle with five touchdown receptions, including two TDs and 105 yards receiving in Seattle’s win over the Texans two weeks ago. With another four catches, he’ll match his career-best of 29 receptions from his rookie season in 2014. After the season, Seattle will have to figure out how to keep Richardson in the fold when his rookie deal expires.
Here’s more from the NFC West:
- A return is still possible for rookie running back T.J. Logan, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians tells reporters (Twitter link via Darren Urban of the team website). Logan will try to field punts next week with a brace on and “see where he’s at.” As of this writing, the Cards have their two IR-DTR spots available to be used. If they burn one on Logan, it will officially rule out a return for either David Johnson or Carson Palmer.
- 49ers defensive end Tank Carradine practiced on Wednesday, kickstarting his path to return from IR (Twitter link via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports). With Carradine and Ronald Blair back in action, the Niners have now used both of their IR-DTR spots for the year.
